Aura (recently rebranded from Insikt) is a financial technology company that provides small, affordable loans to working families in America. We give our customers access to fairly priced credit and we help them build up their credit scores. We have raised over $100M to date from investors including First Mark Capital, Revolution Ventures and Coppell Capital. We have been named to the INC 5000 Fastest Growing Companies in America, American Banker’s 2019 Best Places to Work in Financial Technology and we are ranked #23 on the San Francisco Business Times’ Top 100 Fastest Growing Private Companies.
We are fighting for economic justice.
Aura is focused on helping real people in communities that have been neglected, forgotten or actively exploited by predatory lenders.
We are not making products for the 1%. We are making products for millions of hard-working Americans who don’t have access to affordable credit.
We believe in people’s potential.
We believe that when the communities we serve succeed, we succeed.
Amazing people and technology are at the heart of our mission.
We are growing. Our product works. If you are interested in being a part of this, then we want to talk to you!
